One of the biggest questions we’ve gotten is about how we travelled to Antarctica so I figured I might as well show you the full journey we took from London (our home city) to Antarctica. Plus, it takes me right to the very start of this trip so it’s a good way to start this tale, I guess. 😁😁😁😁
Right so from London we booked a direct flight to Buenos Aires in Argentina. There are indirect flight options which connect in other cities on the way to Buenos Aires but even a direct flight is like 14 hours so we decided to just limit travel times by going direct.
Also, at the time when we travelled if you test positive for you know what, you can’t board the ship to Antarctica so we decided to limit our exposure to people and figured waiting around in a connection airport probably wasn’t the best idea for this trip.
So yeah, we booked British Airways flight direct to Buenos Aires for the January the 2nd but that flight actually got cancelled by British Airways and our booking got moved to New Year’s day instead.
Thing is, we’d originally booked the trip on the 2nd of January because we were planning on nursing a New Year’s Eve hangover on the New Year’s day but thanks to our decision to isolate before travelling we actually ended up doing nothing for New Year’s Eve anyway.
To be honest, we’d already started isolating even before Christmas. We’d been planning this trip for years and it had actually been postponed a few times already so now that we had confirmed plans in place, we wanted to do our very best from our end to try not to test positive.
Oh, and we’d also made plans to arrive in Argentina a few days early to explore the cities we would be in before boarding the ship to Antarctica but we’d totally forgotten that due to isolation, we wouldn’t be exploring those city before our trip either.
Anyway, so fast forward – we arrived in Buenos Aires at the crack of dawn and went over to our hotel – The Alvear Palace hotel.
Thankfully, even though it would normally be too early to check in, we were allowed to check in and without skipping a beat, we promptly fell asleep for the next 9 hours.
The rest of the time in Buenos Aires was pretty chilled. Evening drinks at the bar downstairs – incredibly socially distanced, I might add.
